We spend the full hour with the amazing Kambri Crews. She tells us what it’s like to grow up as a hearing child with two deaf parents, adventures with mom’s “back massager”, and the night she found out that her father was arrested almost stabbing a woman to death. We laugh, cry and make new drinks.
